Horizon Protocol development is currently centered on the prerequisites for mainnet launch of the Horizon Token (HZN). …

The first phase of the Horizon Genesis Testnet launch is complete.

The migration of code and smart contracts from the Ethereum chain to the Binance Smart Chain has been successful. Now we move forward to test the functionality and user interface of the Horizon Genesis dApp. At this time, the current front-end features available on the Horizon Genesis dApp are minting, burning and claiming. You will be able to mint zUSD by staking HZN and thereby incurring a debt that’s maintained by a collateralization ratio. Burning zUSD in effect repays debt and allows for reclaiming of HZN or managing the…
